Presents black comedian Bill Cosby appearing in white make-up and green eye shadow in a special that discusses bigotry. Shows Cosby assuming the role of a super-bigot, and employing all the stereotype prejudices in his monologue.

Those Guys who give out Quaaludes for sex? Get rid of em.
Interesting monologue by Cosby about prejudice and bigotry that's a bit long winded and heavy handed, but interesting just the same, especially nowadays with his notoriety. Not too sure about that makeup job and those "daring" special effects.

Great to see this film again
The last time I saw this film was back around 1979 when I was in a high school history class. I still recall students laughing initially at the racial stereotypes, and then gradually becoming quiet as they became increasingly embarrassed. I thought then, and I think now, that the simplicity and directness of this film makes it work. However, I am not sure how I feel about the "punchline" at the end. It has been terrific to see this film again. It has lost none of its punch.
